Lessons of Earth Hour

Well, earth hour has come and past. We have turned on the laptop, but still have our candles glowing. Here’s the video about earth hour for those of you who may not be aware.

I have to say that this was a pretty fun experience. Here are the things that I learned from participating.
1) It nice to turn off everything and live in a quiet glowing home.
2) It really isn’t so hard to save a bit on the electric bill by turning things off. We could and should do this more often. I am pretty conscientious about keeping lights off, but I have to say that it is rare that we are in our house at night without at least one light on.
3) The last things I turned off for the night was my laptop and then the music on my iPod. I think that this says something about me, but I am trying to figure out what.
4) My 10 month old daughter was sort of freaked out by the darkness and quiet. I think that this says something about our lifestyle.
5) I texted some of my friends about earth hour and many of them didn’t know about it at all.I would like to say that it was great that Moraine Valley participated in this event. I know that the campus is fairly empty on Saturday nights, but Moraine played a part in promoting and spreading the word about this.
